I was happy to have had the chance to hang out with a couple of girlfriends recently. Our lives are so busy and it is so hard to find a date that works out for the three of us. After scheduling and rescheduling a date, we finally got together to eat, laugh, and catch up on each others’ lives.We went to Pineapples in Downtown Hilo since it has a casual, fun atmosphere. In addition, one of my friends has some food allergies and the menu at Pineapples is the best for her special menu requests. They have a nice selection of cocktails and the menu offerings are diverse. I had the chicken Caprese sliders, a special that evening. According to a recent post on Facebook by Blue Zones, the happiest people socialize six hours daily. I was glad to add to my socializing hour with these two buddies. Make sure to spend time with friends and family in a relaxing environment. Don’t wait until tomorrow. Make time now and call a friend you haven’t seen in a while. It is good for your health!
